Good Stuff Thrift
Good Stuff Thrift is locally owned and operated in Bucks County, PA. This means there is no corporate overhead or governance and they employ local labor, so the money goes directly towards helping the local communities from donations and stimulating the local economy. A fun thing that sets Good Stuff Thrift apart is the set-up of their stores-each occupies an old house, with many rooms, each filled with their own unique charm and character.
Goodwill/Goodwill Industries is a nationwide organization with the mission of putting people to work.

It is important to note that 93 cents of every dollar they spend goes directly to their programs and services. Goodwill is consistently ranked among top charities that make your donation go further.

New Life Thrift
In 1994, the New Life Thrift grew out of the successful Food Cupboard Ministry operated by Jennifer Nicholaides of New Life Presbyterian Church in Glenside, PA. Prior to the purchase of its current location in late 2003, New Life Thrift operated with eight employees while utilizing a retail space of 800 sq.ft. in the basement of New Life Presbyterian Church. At its current location, New Life Thrift operates in a 6,110 sq.ft. retail space as a satellite ministry of New Life Presbyterian Church. As faithful and merciful our Lord Jesus Christ is, New Life Thrift continues to grow exponentially to address the needs of the community, region, and the world.

The proceeds from these stores are used to fund their Adult Rehabilitation Centers which are thus self-sustaining. The Salvation Army helps employ rehabilitating adults in their Family Stores which provide great deals and bargain prices on clothing, furniture, household goods, sporting equipment, books, electronics, and much more.
